I have a Master of Public Affairs degree (Political Economics with a Major in Management) from the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). I love to write but am more logical and mathematical in my thinking. It brings to mind something that my 6th grade teacher posted on the wall by my desk - a cartoon that read "I can't spell IN-JUN-EAR, but I R one". I also have a Bachelor of Science degree (Fashion Merchandising) from Texas Tech University, with an extensive retail management background, including District Auditor, Store Manager, Area Sales Manager, and Ralph Lauren Specialist. I love technical stocks and spent several years with Texas Instruments as an Inspector in the semiconductor design area in Dallas, Texas. My favorite stock right now is Sirius XM (SIRI). Two of my favorite sayings come from my parents: From my MOM: The stock market is not for sissy's! And from my DAD: You can never EVER know for sure when to sell a stock. So always sell half. If it drops, buy that half back - if you want to. And if it goes up - sell that other half or keep it. In hindsight he was always right.
